A Day With The A-36's


Published 1943


Silent footage of A-36 Mustang aircraft in Sicily. Combat footage, briefings, ground crews, etc. One clapperboard says "Mustang Invaders Sicily." Probably 1943 and perhaps the 27th or 86th Bombardment Groups.

"Unofficially named the "Invader," the A-36A Apache dive bomber was the first U.S. Army Air Forces version of the Mustang (the Mustang was officially developed for Britain in 1940). The first A-36 flew in September 1942, and North American completed production of 500 A-36As in March 1943.  Assigned to the 27th and 86th Bombardment Groups (Dive), the A-36A first saw action against the the island of Pantelleria in June 1943. During the Italian campaign, A-36A pilots flew bomber escort and strafing missions as well as ground support bombing attacks." -- USAF Museum, the A-36A Apache
